It’s Not Just Fb Or Google

The antivirus product of the year is really
a surveillance tool…

All I can say is… wouldn’t you know it.

Avast was named AV-Comparatives’ 2018 Product of the Year.  It offers premium security for mobile devices, laptops, and home computers.  And it can be downloaded for free.  What’s not to like?

Consumers certainly love the idea of free antivirus protection.  Avast now has more than 435 million active users a month.  That’s a huge customer base.

But it turns out there is a catch…

Avast has a subsidiary called Jumpshot.  And Jumpshot has been harvesting the data of every Avast user from the moment they installed the software.

Every search.  Every click.  Every buy.  On every site.  Jumpshot recorded it all, packaged it up, and sold it.

And guess who the buyers have been?  Google, Microsoft, McKinsey, Pepsi, Home Depot, and others.

These are large, blue-chip companies.  And reportedly some of them have been paying millions of dollars to get their hands on the data Jumpshot has taken.  Some of this data is very sensitive and personal.

This is perhaps even more invasive than what Google and Facebook are doing.  It’s scary.

And we were never supposed to know about it.  Jumpshot required its customers to sign very strict confidentiality agreements.  Thankfully, Motherboard and PC Magazine launched a joint investigation and discovered what was really going on.

So the big takeaway here is simple.  Nothing is ever free.  If a product or service is marketed as free, that means we are the product.

Somewhere, buried within an agreement, consumers unwittingly “consent” to allow these free products and services to spy on them and do whatever they want with the information obtained.

While some companies may call that consent, I call it deception and a violation of our privacy.  And I highly recommend readers stay away from Avast… and stay skeptical of any other product that is supposedly “free.”

Indian Health Service Doctor Faces
Sex Abuse Charges

RAPID CITY, SD  –  A former Indian Health Service physician in South Dakota faces federal charges that he sexually abused Native American patients.

Pedro Ibarra-Perocier, 58, of Wagner was indicted by a federal grand jury Feb. 4 on four counts of sexual abuse and four counts of abusive sexual contact involving his patients, according to U.S. Attorney for South Dakota Ron Parsons.

Ibarra-Perocier previously worked at the IHS clinic in Wagner on the Yankton Reservation.  The allegations involve four adults between January 2014 and August 2018.

The indictment does not explain where or how Ibarra-Perocier allegedly abused his patients, but it says he engaged in sexual acts and contact with patients by threatening them and making them fearful.  A trial date has not been set.

Earlier this week, a former IHS pediatrician was sentenced for sexually abusing Native American children while on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota. Stanley Patrick Weber, 71, of Spearfish was sentenced in federal court to five consecutive life sentences and ordered to pay $800,000 in fines.

In a statement Friday, the IHS said it has “made important strides to address and prevent sexual abuse in healthcare facilities and strengthen policies on patient protections and staff reporting responsibilities.  Patients and employees of the Indian Health Service should never face sexual harassment or abuse.”

How Can CPS Be Above The Law!!!!

Pennsylvania: Former CPS Worker Charged With Human Trafficking

With all of the reporting coming out in recent days concerning Child Protective Services (CPS), it’s no wonder that this has occurred.  The only question that remains is: Why have not countless hundreds, or even thousands, also been charged?  Yet, an ex-CPS social worker is now facing charges of human trafficking after recruiting a mother who was her client into prostitution in exchange for a favorable custody recommendation, according to authorities.

Candace Talley, 27, Winslow, NJ charged with 2 counts of human trafficking, promoting prostitution, making threats and other charges.

Candace Talley, 27, of Winslow, New Jersey, was working for the Division of Children and Youth Services in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, when she coerced the mother, whose children were in foster care and whose case Talley was managing, into working as a prostitute, the Delaware County District Attorney’s office announced Thursday.

Talley drove the woman to and from jobs and took more than 25% of the money that was made, authorities said.  Talley also promised the woman she would help falsify her drug test results to help her case.  Talley was part of an “extensive prostitution ring,” the district attorney’s office said in a press release.

Talley was arrested Thursday and charged with two counts of human trafficking for financial gain, promoting prostitution, making threats and other related charges.

That’s not all, CPS has also worked hand in glove with Planned Parenthood to not only kidnap kids from loving homes but blackmail pregnant mothers to murder their unborn children in order to get their children back that CPS kidnapped from them; and those that refused were told that once they gave birth, CPS would be there to kidnap that child from them too.

CPS also failed to return children they kidnapped from mothers who chose abortion to get their kids back.
